| A truly heartfelt and beautiful show about same-sex couples
I'm not a huge fan of animated shows or mangas, I just stumble upon a few that I end up liking. Boy oh boy was I surprised at how much I enjoyed 'Sekaiichi Hatsukoi.' First of all, the music is absolutely amazing. It sets the scenes, and pulls at my heartstrings every time I hear it. The quality of animation is spectacular as well, with beautifully drawn characters and places.

What makes it so good is the unbelievably heartfelt romance. There are three couples throughout the show, and we get heaps of time to get to know each one. I became attached to every single character.

I couldn't stop watching this show if I tried... it may be cheesy and unrealistic, however, it's the most uplifting and beautiful show I've ever seen.

This is coming from someone who doesn't particularly like the genre, so that's got to count for something.
